Two days after St. Patty’s and I expect the green tinge to be off your tongue, your beer hangover abated, and you all back on the straight and narrow: Drinking wine.
I gave you one day to drink green-tinged alcoholic beverages. Heck, I might’ve even had one, or two, myself. But, now that the revelers have all gone home, and I’m betting that it will be another 363 days before you’ll be wanting to feel that greenish again.
I’ve never been a big green-holiday-gal. The firefighters I know rent limos and hit up every Hooters between here and Florida if given half the chance and a 4-day. (4 days off in a row in their normal 11 24-hour workdays a month.)
I don’t drink, or eat, anything that will change the color of my tongue/teeth/lips to green…only purple stains do I allow. So much more sophisticated, less filling, acceptable and…in my mind, tastier.
I don’t drink beer, unless I happen to be having the freshest beer available to me at Oktoberfest in Munich. Chased by flower-infused Vodka shots…
I drink wine. And, the reason for the photo above isn’t just to remind you that this is a wine blog. It’s to remind you to drink more water – to remove that pesky green stain and reduce that even peskier two day hangover. And Grandma is just another dose of reality in case you’re still thinking…yes, more beer is a good thing. (The photo on the right is to remind you that most beer-toting women don’t have a frothy mustache.)
And, Eve of Destruction has one more partying…err parting….remark: It’s less than a month before your taxes have to be done. (Grandma Accountant above agrees.) Put away the kegger, uncork your wine, and sip with sharpened pencil in hand. Now, there’s a sobering thought.
